Cottage country is one of Canada’s greatest gifts. While making many new friends at the cottage, adults and children alike have many opportunities to partake in numerous activities such as water skiing, wakeboarding, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, jet skiing, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, boating, or simply enjoying a sandy beach. There are times for reading and relaxing whether it is curled up on the sofa, lying on the dock, sitting in an Adirondack chair or swinging in the cottage hammock. Having a family BBQ, sitting out around the campfire with family and friends, watching the sunset, or simply looking at the stars, is particularly enjoyable for all.

Ken and his team at KCV were attentive and communicated continually to ensure that all was set for our weekend stay. What a great cottage and a wonderful experience all around. Looking very much forward to booking another stay through Kawartha Cottage Vacations. Thank you again to Ken and his team.
